Most of these blind eventually resort to street begging and total dependence on alms for survival, because they have not been empowered to fend for themselves.

Solution

The target school for the blind Afara Ukwu Umuahia in Abia State South East of Nigeria will be better equipped to cater for the blind pupils and students. These blind persons will eventually develop capacity to live a better life being able require little or no aid for survival. The computers and gadgets will improve learning, the craft and local production skill acquisition will empower the blind persons to live a better life.

Long-Term Impact

At least 80 blind persons will be immediately empowered especially after the 3 months thorough training. The school for the blind Afara Ukwu Umuahia in Abia State South East of Nigeria will be better equipped to improve the lives of blind persons in the state an beyond.
